Xena: Warrior Janitor? Lucy Lawless wants to fight violence against women with assault brooms

“Assault weapons have no place in civil society,” says Lucy Lawless, the actress who made a name for herself as an Amazon warrior on “Xena: Warrior Princess.”

Out: Boomsticks. In: Broomsticks.

      HBO? Not even. Starz

  • NRPax

    Here’s an idea Lucy. I’ll have you face off against two rapists. The first one I will allow you to tell him to his face about how uncivilized he is. The second one, you get a gun to argue with.

    “Assault weapons have no place in civil society”
    Well, neither do rapists, home invaders, kill lists, murderers, gangbangers, and Chris Brown. But they’re all here, right? At least with an “assault rifle” people have a means to protect themselves, especially if Chris Brown is on a bender.

      how quickly would these anti-gun liberals go out and buy a gun if they thought that abortion was going to be made illegal?

  • TocksNedlog

    It’s too bad that someone forgot to tell the criminals they live in a civil society.

    • Elilla Shadowheart

      Criminals know they live in a civil society. That’s why they’re able to take advantage of those who are disarmed.

    Shut up, Xena.

  • carla5731

    How long will it take these women with brooms to get to me once I’ve called them? Do rapists know that in a civil society an attacker is supposed to stop the assault and allow the victim to make a call?

    • http://www.facebook.com/138900508 Patrick Dennehy

      Maybe if they came riding in on them! That image suits most lib women anyways

  • grais

    I imagine that will work as well as whistles and vomit.

    • louisiana_mom

      Or Biden’s advise to use a double barrel shotgun and fire two shots into the air… this way you can face your attacker with an empty shotgun…

      • mcwsunshine

        and be arrested for discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a residence…our Vice President is as informed about our laws as our President is.

    Rapists in India don’t seem to be too concerned about the Gulabi gang. This ditz might want to Google ‘rapes in India’.

    • http://www.facebook.com/138900508 Patrick Dennehy

      How weirdly ironic that she used India as an example. Does she even read the news?

      • Ntr

        She’s a self-centered “celebrity” she gets her news filtered and reinterpreted by the hollow cavern between her ears where the negative is automatically blanked out and only the feel-good BS, appealing to their shallow sensibilities, is paid attention to.

  • Marie

    A gun would be easier and more effective than a broom.

    Libs are such idiots.

  • Natalie Beckford

    Xena, please slip quietly into obscurity and stop embarrassing yourself.

    Considering Kevin Sorbo is conservative, I would choose Hercules over Xena any day.

    • http://twitter.com/piper77 piper77

      sorbo is also a truther. i used to follow him on Facebook until i found that out about him.

      • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

        He’s probably still better than 90% of Hollywood though.

  • RightThinking1

    ‘Warrior’? Hasn’t she made a living exploiting the appeal of Hollywood-produced violence? I’m calling this the Glover Gambit, i.e., trying to CYA by condemning the very behavior that you have portrayed and from which you have profited

  • NachoCheese (D)

    “assault weapons”

    Being that I am certain Ms. Lawless couldn’t define what she means with that phrase, I will happily define it for her.

    Assault weapons are weapons used by criminals to harm others.

    Given that definition, I am in complete agreement with her, and will use my Self Defense AR-15 to assist in removing them from our civil society.

  • Charm4sure

    Lawless proving that it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to opine and remove all doubt.

    So violence with a gun = bad. Violence with a broomstick = ok. The mind boggles.

  • http://twitter.com/InformedNow InformNow

    She’s still around? I did not know that. I’d Tweet her to enlighten her of her stupidity but I value my time. Lucy Lawless… meh…

  • Tequila

    Nice she has found something to do in between stints of protesting and getting arrested against whaling while running around with Greenpeace. For someone who built a persona of a warrior princess she is anything but that in her personal life. Typical brain dead liberal. With an Aussie accent.

    • Angela

      She is from New Zealand. And an actor. Acting is make believe, remember? She never claimed to be anything like Xena.

  • TheKingJAK

    Then why are those Indian women demanding guns for self-defense, genius?

      Wish she wasn’t a Kiwi. She is an embarasment.

          All is forgiven. At least you didn’t say “Bo staff”, which is redundant 😉

  • Guest

    Hahahaha. Out of context much? Just look at the timestamps. Have you even read her twitter description? Good grief, people here ACTUALLY can’t tell a joke/troll reply to the broom tweet? Btw, conservatives joke around and debate with her all the time with good humor. Some conservatives have it what it takes to do that, and others, well hmmmnn, not so much.

    • http://www.facebook.com/138900508 Patrick Dennehy

      Even if she was trolling, she is still lame. Being flippant about gun control isn’t really a knee slapper

      • Guest

        Hahaha, she wasn’t being flippant about gun control? Learn to read. The broom comment WAS the quick wit troll reply. duhhh.

    “Assault weapons have no place in civil society”

    To the contrary, recognition of the right to armed self defense is a defining trait of civilization.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    I’m starting to think these hollywood actresses and liberal women would justify themselves getting beaten and raped if it meant the right of self-defense would be taken away. And holy moley, people. Google rape in NEw Zealand(Ms. Lawless’ native land for those that don’t give a rat’s ass about her) Not a very civil society down there.

    • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

      Eh, she’s married to an American though so she doesn’t have to worry about NZ society anymore.

  • $35072932

    Arrghh again with the “Assault Weapon” Scam..

    I wonder if she could even explain what is meant by that arbitrary term.

    People need to know that here is NO DIFFERENCE between this arbitrary term and the arms in the Constitution, it’s is just a Fraud to get rid of the right of self-defense.

    • Michael Rice

      There was a letter to teh Editor in my local paper from a guy wanting to ban all auto and semi auto weapons. He obviously has no clue what those terms means.

      • $35072932

        That is part of the point of the “Assault Weapon” Scam – to confuse people and get them to accede to the banning of guns in the hope they won’t eventually come after theirs.

  • stillinthe60s

    Apparently the husbands in India don’t have guns to protect themselves from the “Gulabi gang”.

  • Ntr

    She’s obviously not much of a thinker. I mean, she proudly calls herself a troll on her Twitter account. A 44-year-old with the intellect, understanding and insight of a thirteen year old. Our domestic policies are none of her concern.

  • ernst1776

      They likely see it as an opportunity to regain some of the lost spotlight.

        Lawless is currently on one of the most popular television shows out right now (Spartacus). Hardly a ‘has been’.

    Remember when Whoopi went off about Samantha Geimer daring to expose the ritual of how a young woman gains success in male dominated entertainment industries, claiming it wasn’t “rape rape”. I wonder if Lawless likely had “preformed” similar rituals to gain stardom and is therefor angry that other women would choose to defend themselves rather than just submit. Stockholm syndrome anyone?

  • Charles Hammond Jr

    Is it just me or does the world seem hell-bent on dissolving into madness?

    Guns are bad m’kay? Sure, but now all of a sudden attacking a rapist with a broom is adequate?

    For the love of all that’s good an holy, please use a more humane method of putting a sick rapist down: .45 ACP or bust.

  • http://twitter.com/piper77 piper77

    xena what are you doing? want your chakram banned too?

    • Guest

      It’s beyond hilarious seeing this. I saw someone call Lawless a hypocrite at twitter because of Xena’s chakram weapon. Was that you? The whole “you use guns/weapons on screen therefore you’re a hypocrite if you argue for gun control” is so flawed it’s hysterical. You mean people ACTUALLY don’t have the mental capacity to separate actors/actressess voicing opinions from the characters they play? It’s like saying: “if you play a doctor, then complain about a one” you’re a hypocrite since you played one in a movie!? Or you play a child molester, but you’re a hypocrite if you speak out against them!? The funny part is that the people whom make this argument are quite serious in their own uhm…seriousness, and think they have a valid argument advantage point with it, never realizing the joke is on them and their ludicrous logic. Even my republican friends get a good laugh about this. Hahaheehee. Not all conservatives are NRA whores, just the ones in government and their dumb sheeple.

      • vino veritas

        What’s actually hilarious is that you attempt to be condescending in your silly rant only to end up completely missing the plainly obvious and simple irony concerning all this incessant prattling about guns which your hero’s in hollyweird moronically spout off about. How is it that there are people like you that cant understand the simple reality that exploiting gory gun violence on screen in order to make lots of money then simultaneously proclaiming that guns are bad and somehow turn everyday people into serial killers is the very apex of arrogant hypocrisy? These are the same people who think drug abuse & hedonism are great boons for society. This tangent you go off on regarding child molesters and doctors is not based on any coherent truth or sentiment that I have ever seen expressed here or by conservatives, in general. That’s allot of hyperbolic stupidity which is what the fascist & anti-constitutional left are experts in displaying. You seem like just another hysterical propaganda-spewing anti-gun zealot & pathetic hollywood whore who’s been dunked in that toxic Tinseltown koolaid for too long. Time to go to detox along with lindsey lohan and try getting back to reality.

        • Guest

          My my, I must have struck a nerve. Such vitriol. This was the best you could do for a comeback? Hahahahahahah! You’d never make a debate team dude.

          Oh, and this part in your comment: “This tangent you go off on regarding child molesters and doctors is not based on any coherent truth or sentiment that I have ever seen expressed here or by conservatives, in general. .” Hahahahahaha, have you never heard of a metaphor? duhhh…..

          As for movies is turning people into killers, it’s the same answer people against gun control use. You know, the one where they say: “why don’t all gun owners go out and mass kill people?” Because there are plenty of responsible gun owners right? The same for movies. Why don’t millions and millions of people who watch violent movies go out and kill? Or for that matter, why don’t millions of people that play violent video games go out and kill people? Because maybe there is something else going on with these people, like mental illness.

          People who are for gun control don’t want mentally ill people to get guns. That’s part of gun control ya know! Furthermore, people for gun control don’t think there is any need for anyone, to own certain types guns that kill on a massive scale in 5 or ten seconds? Are there many other things that should be done? Of course. Rational discussions(you don’t qualify) and action about ALL of this needs to take place.

          Shall I come back later and see if you’ve(or someone else) placed another amusing reply? Hahaha…

      • http://www.4chan.org/pol La’Milton

        but dont libs blame gun violence on video games? and considering this problem is older than video games, must that not then include movies? so we should take all violence and guns out of movies. right?…….RIGHT????

    Liberals have destroyed the civil society so now we need more guns. I wish these libs would address their gun control ideas to the criminal thugs in person. It isn’t the CCW holding NRA members that are shooting up the town.

    Not every woman can use a sword effectively. In
    addition, that ‘Gulabi gang’ she mentioned features several women against one
    man. No rapist is going to attack a group. Like any predator, they will seek
    out one who is alone.

  • kazzer66

    She might have a point…if we lived in a ‘civil’ society, but with the continuing proliferation of liberal lawlessness, the average citizen has to defend themselves from the criminals created by our central government, and living in our own neighborhoods. Maybe when the current bleeding hearts quit making excuses for criminal behavior and we can finally eliminate these monsters from our midst, we will actually live in a ‘civil’ society.

    But I won’t hold my breath for that to happen anytime soon…so I’d rather hold a gun.
